As Wikipedia observes, "Henry Daniel (1765-1841) was an enameler and colour maker. Prior to setting up his own manufactory in 1822 he ran a business within the Spode II factory from at least 1805 to August 1822.
In 1822, Henry formed his own business. Richard (1800-1884) Henry’s second son was officially made a partner in 1826. The manufactory known as H & R Daniel continued until 1846 when it ceased due to insolvency.
Daniel’s wares were said to be on a par with the best hand painted porcelain of the time. Prestigious customers included the Earl of Shrewsbury and the Duke of Clarence (later William IV)."
